Out of the 30 headline acts announced since 2010 only four have been women – Beyonce, Adele, Billie Eilish, Florence and the Machine – with Emily claiming it’s due to a ‘problem in the pipeline.’
She told : ‘We’re trying our best so the pipeline needs to be developed.This starts way back with the record companies, radio. I can shout as loud as I like but we need to get everyone on board.’
She added that they remain ‘entirely focused on balancing our bill. It’s not just about gender, mpoagen it’s about every aspect of diversity.’
Emily went on to commit to having two female headliners next year and said Lizzo – who will perform just before Guns N’ Roses – would have been booked to headline this year but the positions had already been locked in by the male acts.
